Addis Ababa Things to Do: 102 reviews and 246 photos

Ethiopia is a poor country and you will see a lot of beggars on the streets of Addis Ababa. Would you like to help without causing social problems? HOPE Enterprises runs a feeding centre on Churchill Avenue. Just stop by the office and you can buy a book of meal tokens for very little money. For less than 10 US cents you can provide a recipient with a nutritious meal at their feeding centre. If you give beggars on the street money without knowing what you are doing, often the money is spent on something other than food. HOPE makes sure they get the nourishing food the homeless people need to survive. Buy several books.

HOPE also does developmental project including helping people get an education. You can donate in person or via their website.

(Please do NOT take pictures of the people eating ? it would be terribly rude).
